    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at ViacomCBS (New York, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process began with an initial interview with HR. Afterwards, I was then forwarded to the hiring manager of the department I was applying for. A few days later I was called in and the interview was very casual - more so a conversation.
